“Husband-and-wife team Jos and Alison Skeates have magpie’s eye for good design, which makes for delightfully varied browsing. Over 50 designers are showcased: temptingly inexpensive trinkets include native new Yorker Alexis Bittar’s colourful lucite bangles, Lindsay Pearson’s silver and gold button friendship bracelets and Adore Hawaii’s sweet little heart necklaces. Among the slightly pricier standouts are Fiona Paxton’s exquisitely beaded collars and cuffs (donned by various fashion-forward starlets) and Swedish designer Celestine Soumah’s beguilingly simple silver designers. Wedding and engagement rings are equally varied in price and style, running from simple stacking bands to shimmering, diamond-encrusted extravaganzas.”
